STORY: One of the cons of traveling cheaply around South East Asia is risking yourself staying at a dodgy place. To save cost, proper maintenance becomes questionable. Although recent studies show that whether you're staying in a cheap hostel or a fancy hotel, you can still be bitten by this.

The narrow streets, the rush of midday passers-by and the aroma of freshly cooked rice fill the air as you walk around Hong Kong. It's true, the transport system which includes the tram, the train and the bus are efficient but there's a more romantic feel to walking around, and discovering the real core of Hong Kong living by just taking time to walk around. I bought a Hong Kong train pass but i didn't maximize it to the full. I have all the reasons why. Instead, i was able to navigate along plush roads and intersecting districts in the heart of Kowloon in Hong Kong. I think that alone made a whole lot of difference. Through experience, i was able to learn a few things that i will be sharing with you on how to gracefully walk around and abound while shopping in Hong Kong, minus the swollen feet.

Don't be shy. Bangkok isn't embarrassed with the reality that one of the main reasons why people, most single men, go all the way from the other side of the world to Bangkok is to get laid.

ALL-TIME FAVORITE POST FROM 2010 RE-BLOGGED: I left the comforts of my dear home and off to an island south of Manila. The night before i left, my father asked me where i was going. To sorta give him a more safe answer, i just said Quezon. But to be honest, it is maybe four hours by boat to this island province called Marinduque. A few hours later, he finally found out where i was heading. He told me that he was there before, with my my grandfather who used to perform with his orchestra in the town plaza.

ULTIMATE BLOG CARNIVAL REWIND:
She’s a mother, a friend and a soul mate. She was born and raised in the northern Luzon province known for white sandy beaches and first-rate marine sanctuaries. She grew up in a province known to many for the famous hundred islands and the tasty milk fish. Apart from the sunny days and green paddies, this province’s hidden gems are the natives who call this magical place their home. My mother, born and raised in beautiful Dagupan, my Pangasinan.

ALL-TIME FAVORITE POST FROM 2009 RE-BLOGGED:When people ask me how my Singapore trip was, i always say it was good while it lasted. Let me tell you that Singapore is a place where many Filipinos aspire to go to. One is to seek for greener pasture and two, because everybody here seems so disciplined. The government has a clean reputation for not being corrupt, and the system is well-organized. A lot of people i know, friends and acquaintances, call this country their new home and i will never argue with them why they chose Singapore in the first place. "To each his own". If you ask me, i would like to say that my time there was enough.
